This moves along slowly and tells a rather soap opera type story. I kept waiting for something interesting to happen, but it did not. Saving grace is that the author paints a good picture of southern France...you feel you are there......but not much goes on.
I really loved this book. I listen mostly to nonfiction, and the author managed to weave threads of real estate investing and wine-making education into a thoroughly delightful story. I was immediately swept away to dreary London and the magic of Provence while listening to this audio book. I have been tempted to rent the movie of the same title, starring Russell Crow, but have refrained for fear that the movie would spoil my book experience. I recommend you listen to this selection if you're at all seduced by wine and travel.
This was a GREAT book. Great fun. Get it - you will love it.
A light, "fun to read" story which almost transports one to rural France. The book tells an interesting tale of Provence, the wine trade and an odd assortment of local characters. Not deep or complex, it is a nice summer read.
Fun, charming, good story and just a good book that will make you smile, relax, and want to listen to more. It will also make you want to go outside on a nice day and wine
Classic Peter Mayle. Light, humerous, and an easy, entertaining, non-confrontational read.
Enjoyable, light. Narrated well. Good to listen to after a more demanding story.
Peter Mayle is the author of A Year in Provence and Toujours Provence, as well as the novels Hotel Pastis, A Dog's Life, and Anything Considered. His books have been translated into twenty-two languages. He divides his time between the south of France and Long Island.
